“You know, in the words of Bill Clinton, I feel her pain, you know?” Steele said in an interview on “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend on Bloomberg Television. “My goal — and I know Sarah’s goal has been — let’s take the party and put it on the streets.”
He also said:
“Put your name next to your quote and then have a conversation with Sarah Palin. Until then, leave it alone,” Steele said. “You know all this kind of dissension and, you know, frustration within the party is not doing anything to get Republicans elected tomorrow. So until we get that job done, let’s not worry about 2012.”
It bears repeating: Death threats against Sarah Palin are at an all-time high (via C4P). Will it take someone being wounded (or worse, killed) to defend Governor Palin and/or any member of her family? I thought that she is still a Republican.

Julian Assange is at it again. Cornered, first he walked off an interview with ABC, and now he’s going after Palin and Huckabee-just because they work on FOX? I ponder this, because both work at the same network and he hasn’t singled out anybody else (yet) on the media.
Thou shall not mention his name; if you do, you will be accused of McCarthyism or something. The quotes on bold are from the article, my responses below.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Cenk Uygur, Assange referred to the politicians-turned-Fox-personalities as “shock jocks” who should be charged for inciting violence against him and his organization.
He also referred to Huckabee as “just another idiot trying to make a name for himself.”
Pot calling kettle? As much as I hate to, I have to defend Mike Huckabee. A Christian Republican that is defending his country against one person that is determined to destroy it-by their own terms of what freedom means-cannot go unnoticed. An immature and childish response towards Huckabee coming from Assange demonstrates that he believes in his own wicked mind how much of a despot he is to other countrymen.
Asked what he thought of the accusation — made by Vice President Joe Biden and others — that he is a “high-tech terrorist,” Assange said his organization’s actions didn’t meet the definition of terrorism — but those of Fox personalities and other TV pundits did.
I have to laugh this one out because Shep Smith is included and he must be in some serious denial. Maybe it will take time for it to sink it. Just sayin’!
“We see constant threats from people, the Republican Senate trying to make a name for themselves, people like Sarah Palin to shock jocks on Fox and, unfortunately, some members also of the Democratic Party, calling for my assassination, calling for the illegal kidnapping of my staff,” Assange said.
Read that quote again. YES-he said UNFORTUNATELY some members also of the Democratic Party. What does he mean by this? Are the top eschelon Democrats involved, and are covering their butts? Are the Democrats destroying the country from within, and not Muslims in the country with domestic terrorism? Tin foil hats are in order. Because really, he didn’t say UNFORTUNATELY some members also of the Republican Party. Case closed.
Of Huckabee’s call to have Assange executed, and Palin’s demand that he be hunted down like al Qaeda, Assange said: “If we are to have a civil society, you cannot have senior people making calls on national TV to go around the judiciary and illegally murder people. That is incitement to commit murder. That is an offense.”
Attention liberals: What hundreds of thousands of Americans believe is true; Sarah Palin is a senior leader. He is NOT attacking Palin: He is raising the bar! If Assange supports Al Qaeda terrorism attacks to this country is another story that would not deviate much from this one. Now I have this question: How do you go around the judiciary on national TV? The media loves to mention Governor Palin, accuse her of something she didn’t do, judge her on the spot and calling for an execution…that’s a correct statement. If you have any questions, simply Google it.
He added: “When people call for illegal, deliberate assassination and kidnapping of others, they should be held to account. They should be charged for incitement to commit murder.”
Sorry Mr. Assange, that does not work in this country. It may work for some, but it gets us nowhere. See, we are a free republic. We are still a capitalist country, not a socialistic nor a communist country. Therefore, we can’t charge people and throw them in prison based on loose accusations like that. Why? Because we have something called “the rule of law.”
“Some of those journalists have fallen for that, and why? Because they are worried that they are going to be next,” he continued. “But I have a message to them — they are gonna be next. … So us journalists and publishers and writers, we all have to stick together to resist this sort of reinterpretation of the First Amendment.”
I will write this: That’s why there are bloggers out there, spreading information based on our First Amendment, which is being trampled right now, along with in other parts of the world where there is limited freedom of speech. The journalists have fallen to report on a balanced way because they have allowed their inner feelings perculate through their articles, or fear to be laid off from their jobs. That is not freedom of speech.
What journalists, publishers and writers have to do to stick together? Gain their reputation back. How? Going back to the principles of the First Amendment by reading about it. Then, tell it like it is to the audience without repercussions from their bosses. If they get upset or fire a journalist, more ears will perk up and identify those who challenge and dare to bring up both sides of the story.

Republican Congressman Jack Kingston (R) GA. was interviewed via radio on a show called “America’s Morning News”, and had a very strong opinion of Governor Palin “butting in” endorsing candidates on each state. He claimed that what Sarah Palin is doing is in fact, dividing the GOP by picking candidates and that she should just stay out of it! Now, wait a minute. There have been state elections with endorsements from Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney.
What bothers Congressman Kingston, is that this Governor’s primary is so close yesterday (50%-49%) and this morning Deal won the primary and Handel conceded. He endorsed Nathan Deal, because he’s worked closely with Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee, and in his opinion is more conservative than the candidate that Governor Palin endorsed, Karen Handel.
Congressman Kingston believes that Sarah Palin picked Handel just because she’s a woman and it hurts Sarah Palin more than the candidates themselves.
What is your take on it? In what way Governor Palin’s endorsements are hurting the Republican Party, when there are three potential presidential candidates for 2012 doing the same? Sarah Palin has not endorsed all candidates based on gender, she does by what they stand for! The last thing Sarah Palin is, is a feminist.
Men in the GOP have to allow women in the party; too much testosterone is blinding these men, and when push comes to shove, there’s little support for Governor Palin. The top branch of the GOP, which is 99.99% men, must be pressed on this issue. What is it about Sarah Palin that, after all that she’s been through since she was nominated, they have not said much?
